The 8th European Quality Assurance Forum (EQAF) took place at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, on 21-23 November 2013.

The European Quality Assurance Forum has been co-organised by ENQA, ESU, EUA and EURASHE since 2006. It provides a unique platform for the higher education and quality assurance (QA) communities to monitor, shape and anticipate developments in the field. The main purpose of the Forum is to foster a dialogue on QA that bridges national boundaries and leads to a common European understanding of QA through discussions and networking among different stakeholder groups.

Through a mix of plenary and parallel sessions, the 2013 EQAF, entitled “Working together to take quality forward”, combined practice-oriented or research-based discussions that took place in the paper sessions and workshops with presentations of current developments in quality assurance. This year the Forum specifically explored how both individuals and organisations can better understand the role that quality assurance can play in their daily lives, get engaged and work together to take quality forward.
